Candy corn is a favorite around our house.
We love how it looks and we love how it tastes, which is why Lizzie challenged me to come up with a candy corn craft she could do. (Yes, my 5-year-old does give me craft challenges!)
After a lot of thought and a bit of trial and error, I can up with this candy corn wreath made from paper plates.

The first step is to paint. We painted on the bottom of our paper plate. We left the center white, painted a thick orange circle around it, and then painted the edges yellow. Your plate will look like a candy-corn-colored bulls-eye.
After the paint is dry, turn the plate over and make your cutting lines.
I drew lines across the plate, dividing it up as I would cut a pizza. You’ll want it divided into 8 wedges.
Once you have all your wedges cut out, your bulls-eye will become 8 pieces of candy corn.
Turn your candy corn pieces to the backside and arrange them in a circle, pointed sides out. Overlap the edges and use your tape to connect them together.
When you’re done taping, turn it over and you’ve got a fun candy corn wreath.
Voila, candy corn wreath challenged completed! I wonder what Lizzie will come up with next?
